Solr search has great performance, is suitable even for use on large commercial websites and supports facets and multi-index searches. What if we want to build your own query or get all indexed nodes programmatically?
Yes, building the custom query for Solr content will solve the problem.
Benefits of custom Solr Query
- Reduces load time.
- Custom filters.
1. Initialize solr api query using your index name
// To get index field value $public_index = “Name of your Index” $index = search_api_index_load($public_index); $query = new SearchApiQuery($index);
2. Building filter, you can add multiple filters in your query
// Build a filter. $node_filter = $query->createFilter('AND'); $node_filter->condition('type', 'content_type', '='); $node_filter->condition('status', NODE_PUBLISHED, '=');
3. Adding filters to query
// Added filter in query. $filter->filter($node_filter); $query->filter($filter);
4. Fetch results of custom query
// Fetch results. $results = $query->execute()['results']; $arr_nodes = array_keys(return $arr_node$results);
